A Hybrid GE, this will be unique.  As long as you can resist the urge to "Tinker" with it

Well, the E10 is now home. A little research yields that mine has a 600 series Delco Light Plant rated at 32 volts @ 600 watts. More research yielded me with a year in which mine was built to be early 1922. These light plants were produced between 1917 and 1947.

As for the E10... No clue what year it is yet... Nor can I figure out how to engage the motor (turn on). I have yet to unload the E10, and am currently draining the water out of the seat... Lol

 

Well you got a custom tractor there, gonna have to figure out what he did to make it work.

The GE 36volt motor will run at 32volts, but I don't know if the relays and contactors will. ???

Motor is suppose to run all the time, your tractor has a clutch.

I don't know what has being done with the modifications.

I have a Delcolight sitting in the barn waiting its turn, (there's a reason I haven't bought any new projects lately).

This site has a lot of good info on the Delco's.

Definitely a cool setup!

Adam, your Delco looks identical to mine. Any additional pictures, fuel delivery especially since mine has modifications.

I think mine is a slightly larger model, I'll get some pics of the fuel system tomorrow or Wed.

I just removed the square red gas tank, looks way better without it. I have another smaller round gas tank I plan to mount. Additionally, I found a new fitting to replace the cobbled one on the engine side. I found a 3/8" female pipe to 1/4" barb brass fitting, surprisingly... At my local ACE hardware. I also picked up a brass barb for the bottom of the gas tank I plan to use, which I think I will paint black. I will be using clear 1/4" fuel line so I can see the fuel movement when starting the engine. Hope to have this running this weekend. I need to re-replace the transaxle pulley. A PO had used a 5" pulley and it broke so my friend bought another 5" pulley to install. I installed the pulley but find the drive belt slips some. OEM size seems to be 6" so if I can score another pulley (simple) I will switch it.

Been driving this thing around on battery power alone, and just got it back from showing it at a tractor and engine show. I have yet to get it running, but have a plan B to the fuel tank/delivery issue. I had to replumb and install a check valve into the fuel line. I had almost everything I needed, only need to buy one more barb fitting, and try again. If I can get it to run after this I will be happy. I need to know a few more things about this Delco though. If anyone has a manual for a Model 600 Delco please help me out. Thanks.

These are from way back and on farms with no electric to them. I'm thinking they just have one speed and run constant once started. Very heavy castings and I bet good oiler systems to run all day/night with out fuss. Coil or mag? have no idea what is used for that. I see these things all the time at Portland show, some have lots of electric panels and gizmos on same platform, look complicated there. They DID come in all sizes, some getting really big and needing a trailer to move them around. One thing that might mess you up is the AC to DC part of the system. Must be parts there for that function?
